12:14 pm
depending on the products, you're likely to find a better deal before or after the big day. reporter: we see it every year, the shopping stampede shortly after the last slice of pumpkin pie. but this year, you may want to stay home and digest because a lot of those black friday specials aren't so special. >> the goal of ads is to drum up excitement. >> reporter: but they say many black friday ads this year look awfully familiar. >> 90% of the retails we looked at were going to sell at least one of the exact same item at the same price this year as last year's black friday. >> reporter: for example, last year radioshack advertised this 500 gig usb for 49.99. this year it's offering the same product for the same price. it turns out it's not even the best price. >> this item started going on sale around august of this year. >> reporter: the usb price hit

chance of sprinkles in the north bay. it will take until tomorrow afternoon before we start to see it move down. once it drags down, it will bring the rain line further south but for today most of that staying to the north. so let's time it out. a couple of clouds out there right now moving across our skies and a mixture of sunshine and occasionally sprinkles in the north bay. but late in the day, that system brings a chance of bay area for tomorrow night. then by wednesday a busy travel day, it looks like things clear out. around the state you will find 60s in the central valley. mostly cloudy lake tahoe. temperatures expecting to be in the 60s around the bay. next couple of days we'll see unsettled weather on tuesday. the good news is, comes late in the day then overnight on tuesday. by wednesday we clear out and dry weather returns for thanksgiving and friday looking good. and by the way, did we mention, yup, we have a big game tonight! we have the 49ers and the bears. partly cloudy, 60 degrees right here on cbs 5. >> nice football weather. >> it's great football weather.

jobs and breast cancer. >> jobs likes food canning, plastics manufacturing and metalwork, women exposed to carcinogens and chemicals could increase their risk of cancer. so if you yawn, i yawn, right? this happens every morning. >> yeah, do you. >> but does your dog yawn, too? >> well, good question, michelle. he probably does. researchers say this finding sheds a lot of light on why yawns are so catchy. researchers observed the response of dogs playing with a person who repeatedly yawns. dogs older than 7 months shoulder signs of contagious yawning. younger puppies didn't. researchers say dogs like humans develop empathy as they age enabling them to identify others' emotions and respond accordingly. the information could actually help in understanding conditions like depression and anxiety, which affect the mood and emotions, not only of those suffering but also of those around them. >> i want to yawn now. >> good. thanks for that. we'll be right back.
